How UCAS points are allocated for RAD exams

Graded and vocational graded examinations in dance at RQF Level 3 are allocated points on the UCAS tariff.

This means that candidates who achieve a pass or higher in Grades 6, 7, 8, Intermediate or Advanced Foundation can use their RAD exam result towards their points tariff when applying to a relevant course at a university or higher education in the UK.

You can find out more information on how UCAS points are awarded here.
